Static Analysis & Development Testing for Embedded Devices

By Jason Schadewald, Product Manager at Parasoft You know those conversations that you have more times than you can count? Well, I recently had one of those at Design West with a very bright software engineer. This poor guy had a number of experiences with static analysis tools that left him with the “compiler warning equivalence” impression. If your static analysis experience is largely with freeware and your training is limited to Internet forums, then I certainly understand how that impression can form. On top of that, he said that the static analysis tools he tried reported ... (more)

Automated Error Prevention for Linux

Most organizations that use Linux as a business operating system are developing their own applications for Linux - perhaps in response to the current scarcity of packaged applications available on Linux. With so much internal development for Linux, it is critical that the IT groups building your Linux-based applications have a means to efficiently produce reliable code. If they don't, you will jeopardize the very reliability and cost-effectiveness that most organizations are trying to achieve by turning to Linux. However, most development teams follow a development process that ... (more)

Product Review: Parasoft WebKing

Quality-conscious developers are familiar with the idea of coding checklists. The code you write must measure up to all the criteria on the checklist, from "no grammatical errors in the comments" to "performs all required functions." Based on these checklists, we have code reviews. A good code review takes time, but is certainly worth the effort. Such reviews can prevent many costly errors. However, when crunch time hits, thorough code reviews are often impossible. That's where a tool like Parasoft's WebKing can help. For several decades tools to automatically generate and run tes...

Bulletproof .NET Code

.NET languages are becoming increasingly popular for driving the application logic for business-critical SOA and Web applications. In these contexts, functional errors are simply not acceptable, and reliability, security, and performance problems can have serious repercussions. Yet, few development teams have the resources to ensure that their code is free of implementation errors, let alone also worry about reliability, security, and performance. Whether or not your team has a satisfactory strategy for functional testing, you're taking several significant risks if you haven't ye... (more)
